Graduation 2023: Live Webcast
Watch a live webcast of the graduation ceremony beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, June 9.
This year’s graduation ceremony will be held on the lawn in front of Robert Saltonstall Gymnasium on Friday, June 9, at 9:30 a.m, rain or shine. Graduates should arrive at 8 a.m. The formal graduation procession begins at Straus Library. A bagpiper then leads the faculty and seniors in a march to their seats.
Guests will not be permitted to leave their assigned seats to take photos. A professional photographer will take pictures of each graduating senior. You will receive proofs over the summer, at which time you can decide whether or not to order copies. You are under no obligation to make a purchase.
Parking and traffic
We will make special arrangements for parking and traffic for graduation. All parking will take place on Upton Field and in the Junior Building parking lot. Our staff, with assistance from the Milton police, will direct you. Please do not park on Voses Lane, Randolph Avenue, or Centre Street.
Because of the number of people on campus, Academy Road, which runs in front of the Robert Saltonstall Gym and the main campus dormitories, will be closed from 9:30 p.m. on Thursday until about 1:45 p.m. on Friday. Parents who wish to load belongings from dorm rooms during these times should use the access road behind the dormitories.
If a member of your party needs to be dropped off close to the ceremony site or requires accessibility access, please communicate with a campus safety officer upon your arrival to campus on the morning of graduation and he or she will make appropriate arrangements. Please remember that no cars will be allowed down past the ceremony site after 9:00am.
We will be entering the season of celebrations. Each year we ask families to stand firm in discouraging risky behaviors, including the use of alcohol and drugs, that jeopardize the well-being of those we celebrate. Please comply with all laws regarding substances and with all guidelines for social gatherings.
